There were five housemates nominated for the second Celebrity Big Brother eviction – Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, Cheryl Fergison , Coleen Nolan, Prince Lorenzo and Julian Clary and the public decided they'd had enough of Cheryl (relive the entire eviction with our live blog here ). Host Brian Dowling first told the house that Julian and The Situation had received the most public votes and so had been saved from the boot. Cheryl, Coleen and Prince Lorenzo made public appeals to be saved live on TV before Brian announced that Cheryl had lost out and was going to be the second person evicted. She refused to get all touchy feely when the remaining housemates tried to console her, saying: “Please don't hug me, it's not very good.” We're not sure what that meant either but are putting it down to shock... or something. Seems it was quite a surprise to most that Cheryl got kicked out. Prince Lorenzo was continually booed by the crowd outside the house, as was Coleen, who was … [Read more...] about Cheryl and her ‘crunch’ leave CBB as Jasmine’s mum prepares to go in!

You can’t use the same flowers for both occasions because that’s cheating! With Tet and Valentine’s Day celebrations falling within the same time slot, it’s the best chance flower sellers have had in a while to make some bucks. It’s also a double reminder of the value of family and personal love during the tough times of the COVID-19 pandemic and Vietnam is no exception. Say ‘Chuc mung nam moi’ and you know it’s Tet. Valentine’s Day is named ‘Ngay Tinh Nhan’ or ‘the feast of love’ or more simply ‘Ngay Valentine.’ Traditionally, Tet has been the main occasion for expressions of love, fidelity, and bonds of affection. Valentine’s Day is less so as it’s only a recent addition to Vietnamese culture imported from the West; yet it is hugely popular with younger Vietnamese.

Joanne Peh – one of Singapore’s biggest stars in television – feels the way a lot of people with children do, when scrolling through an Instagram feed that makes you feel like you’re about three connecting flights and a ride at the back of a donkey carriage away from Parent Of The Year.

We start to compare ourselves to the perfect lives of people who are on social media and think, ‘Oh, I want to be like that, why am I not like that?’” “How is the playroom so tidy and neat? And how is it that their kids can play independently by themselves? I’m like, ‘Man, my house is a mess,” she said. “The playroom is never tidy, and I think I’m bad at organising and I need a better storage system… That makes me feel bad.” I wasn’t prepared for this. I’ve always wanted to be a mother, but no one ever … [Read more...] about Joanne Peh: Live your own lives, mums – your children need you to be happy
